Flight Log – Crisscrossing The Delaware

February 20th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Gaming

Today’s flight log is available here. Saturday saw winds gusting upwards of 50mph, so there was no chance I was taking up a little Cessna in that, especially when trying to land at small rural fields. Today was forecasted to be better, but winds wouldn’t start dying down until later in the day and then […]

Flight Log – Weather Wise

February 13th, 2011 · No Comments · Gaming

I made three major changes to my flying on this trip: Logging flight time. I’m not going to actively log hours, as right now that is entirely meaningless for me, but I have started getting into a habit of sticking to a flight schedule. This is because 1) at some point in my virtual aviator […]

Flight Log – Airplanes Aren’t Lawn Darts

February 6th, 2011 · 5 Comments · Gaming

This past week I developed 4 small private turf field airports. What’s notable about them all is I realized that I didn’t need to use an actual runway for them. There’s no AI traffic flying in and out of these airfields so the sim won’t care if there’s no actual hard-surfaced runway on them. And […]

Flight Log – Coastal VFR

January 29th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Gaming

Today’s flight was compounded by weather, but for the most part turned out okay. The plan was to take off from Aeroflex-Andover (12N) and head west to hook up with the Delaware River, then follow that all the way down to the Delaware Bay, at which point I would round the tip of Cape May […]

Flight Log – Ferry Services

January 22nd, 2011 · No Comments · Gaming

So the conundrum with today’s flight was – how do I get my Cessna back? I left it up at 4N1 when I took the helicopter down to Manhattan. I suppose I could just chopper it back up there and grab it, but that’s not really exciting. Instead I decided to do a good deed […]

Flight Log – Pure VFR

January 15th, 2011 · No Comments · Gaming

So today I took my first flight of 2011! I got to mix a little bit of business with pleasure as well, plotting a flight that was completely VFR while also checking out one of my airports and that of an associate for whom I am beta testing. To get an idea of just how […]

Flight Log – Airport Hopping 2

November 27th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Gaming

After spending several more weeks designing some new airports it was time to hop back in the cockpit and actually fly to them. I’ve been pretty productive since my last flight, and now have 37 airports up on AVSIM – that means I only have about 100 more to go, hahaha. Oh boy, I wish […]

Flight Log – Airport Hopping

October 18th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

For this flight I decided I was going to fly in and out of some of the airports I’ve been designing recently to get some use out of them. I also decided I was going to finally start paying attention to check lists. FSX has a “kneeboard” you can call up in flight to see […]

Flight Log – Down and Up the Hudson

October 13th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

  So I’ve been spending the majority of my free time these past few weeks designing scenery rather than flying. Although the satellite scenery I’m using for the NJ/NY/MA/RI area is awesome, it’s a bit of a double-edged sword when it comes to airports. See, the default FSX airports are not designed to match the […]

Flight Log – Bumpy Ride

September 21st, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

  Man, Igor may have missed us, but you could feel his wrath in the air today that’s for sure! Never had to deal with so much damn turbulence while flying – it got to the point of being just plain annoying, especially in the helicopter which is already difficult enough to manage. But I […]
